Houseboat summary

In the Alegria you will have the experience of staying in a 40 meters long cargo vessel, that has been used for long time as repair workshop. The captain's house has been now renovated and adapted as Bed and Breakfast for guests visiting the city!

By staying at Alegria you will have all comfort of a freshly renovated house while experience the old time glory of a cargo. The houseboat is located in the calm of a Ghent neighborhood just few minute away from all the main touristic attractions. 

At Alegria, we offer a water-bike and a canoe that our guests can use for free and a little boat for rent. These are both nice ways to explore the surroundings during the sunny days!

Houseboat description

The Captain's area has been refurnished to accommodate a maximum 3 guests.

During your stay, you can enjoy the relax of common area furnished with a sofa and a old style table. After a long day of city exploration, you can also decide to cook something on your own in the kitchenette or to take a rest in one of the two separate sleeping rooms.

For guests that would like to travel in couple there will be a first double bedroom available. In case of families, or friends, we also offer an extra single bedroom for your stay.

If you want to feel the feeling of being a captain for one day, you can sit in the steering cabin to enjoy the view!

Please remember that there is no electricity from the shore, so you have to start the generator a little in advance to have hot water. Preferably not in the middle of the night, to not disturb the neighbors rest! The rest can be done from the batteries. 

...this is an old style houseboat, passed through many adventures!
